How Canada is helping - Russian invasion of Ukraine

Development, humanitarian and financial assistance
To date in 2022, Canada has committed $245 million in humanitarian assistance to respond to the needs of people affected by the situation. With this contribution, our partners will provide emergency health services, protection, support to displaced populations and essential life-saving services such as shelter, water and sanitation, and food.
Canada has offered a loan, as announced on February 14, 2022, of up to $500 million to the Government of Ukraine through the Bretton Woods and Related Agreements Act, in addition to a $120 million loan that was announced on January 21, 2022 through the Sovereign Loans Program (SLP) to support the country’s economic resilience and governance reforms. Canada has also offered a technical assistance grant of up to $6 million to support the loan’s implementation.
Canada announced an additional $35 million in development funding to partners in Ukraine that are well-placed to scale up programming, respond to evolving needs and that have the ability to deliver programming if the situation deteriorates. This will scale up support for peace and security initiatives and services for those affected — particularly women and marginalized groups.
Canadian Armed Forces operations
In September 2015, we launched Operation UNIFIER, the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) military training and capacity-building mission in Ukraine. The deployment usually consists of approximately 250 CAF personnel to Ukraine under Operation UNIFIER. This operation has been extended until the end of March 2025. Since the establishment of this mission, over 33,000 Ukrainian personnel have been trained under Op UNIFIER.
